Twins, they talk about the darndest things. Rodrick Stewart, for instance, will call identical twin Lodrick to tell him that he's about to go to class at Kansas. Lodrick will report that he's doing nothing more than lying down at home and is preparing to see a tutor at USC. A short while later, one of the twins will invariably call the other to say that he's going to basketball practice. "We'll call each other back and forth like that the whole day," Lodrick said.
